Wow! What can I say? It’s been a while since I went on the website for some much needed updates. I currently don’t like this theme very much so you can bet I will change it over the next week or so. Why have I been delinquent with updating posts for this website? Hmm … let’s start with the following slivers of reality:
1. Work. I have been working way too much. Nuff said. (I have always promised I wouldn’t discuss my company or the current state of affairs on this website. Too many prying eyes.)
2. Kids, kids, kids. The boys have been non-stop between t-ball and soccer during the week that I have been exhausted everytime I even think of going near a computer. They are having boat loads of fun but it is very draining for Barbie and I. Thankfully this week is the last of the hell-weeks because t-ball finally ends this week so we only have two bouts of soccer each week between Carter and Connor.
3. Building a tree house for the boys. Now that was not too much time but we had to burn a couple of days thinking and then getting the tree house to the back of the house. It involved several neighbours, a rental truck, and getting a great deal on the tree house. (We got the tree house structure from Home Depot after they offered to sell their display model out front for $100!! Sweet deal to say the least.)
4. Parties, parties, parties! Between my Dad’s birthday and Connor’s friends, we have been out and about quite a bit.
Ok, so back to family updates. Here are some pictures of the boys in various scenarios over the last couple of weeks. These times are fun but hectic.
Here is Carson on his favourite musical toy. What a handsome little devil! I wonder where he got those looks from?
If you have been following the news, Ottawa has had some seriously hot days. Murder in fact. Well, the boys have decided to make some money on this ordeal and what better way to rake in some cash then having a Kool-Aid stand. One problem they encountered was that the product was constantly being tested by them. Note Carter taking a cut of the profits.
They made over $8 that day. A Purolator driver stopped and gave them $2 for a glass (sweet deal) and the neighbours also popped over for a drink.
Of course being handsome and offering some drinks attracts girls. Here are the boys making a deal with some girls that were walking back from school. Score!!
The boys have had some fun play dates recently. Most involved someone’s pool and there have been casualties. Here is Carson by the pool completely zonked.
Of course there is Carter! Never tired and wired on cupcakes, sun and the pool in that order. He is one of a kind for sure. We love him!!
Last shot … Carson playing with one of the neighbour’s girls. Already attracting the women like the other Colvin boys. Way to go Carson!!
I better hit the hay. Nice chatting with ya and I will continue with the updates for my adoring public.
